Senate Bill 792 Cosponsors

H.R. 1769 Cosponsors

The two bills are essentially the same language to primarily force products named milk to come from cows. This is to help dairy producers in slumping sales against Almond Milk and Soy Milk products such as Silk. Now this means that there would be no coconut milk, a very long term used work for the watery liquid inside a coconut. And one can only imagine that goat milk is a no-no and that babies suckling breasts will no longer be imbibing breast milk or mother’s milk.

Good thing Harvey Milk is dead otherwise consumers might get confused. No word as to if Gus Van Sant needs to change the title of his 2008 movie.

Do we not have bigger things to work on besides something no consumer is confused about, like maybe crumbling roads and bridges nationwide?

My wife drinks coconut milk daily and she says it should be called coconut beverage. She wouldn't touch milk with a ten foot stick so she would be happy to get rid of milk in the name.

BTW Trader Joe's already calls their coconut "milk" coconut beverage.

I suspect there are no lobbyists for those issues so the politicians are not aware of them.

The milk issue is simply lobby money being handed over. Time to cash in.

Couldn't it at least by something whose source is a mammal. Where are the mammal lobbyists.

Since I now work in the dairy industry, I can see this for the Almond and Soy. BS anyway, in my opinion. (granted, doesn't mean much)

But I don't think this is what the dairy industry needs, to help them. Right off the bat, I would think the equipment industry shouldn't be charging an arm and a leg for the equipment. The price of robotics is astronomical.

Here is the criteria


“(2) For purposes of this paragraph, a food is a dairy product only if the food is, contains as a primary ingredient, or is derived from, the lacteal secretion, practically free from colostrum, obtained by the complete milking of one or more hooved mammals.

Almond milk - Nut juice (almonds are for cakes , brownies , and candy)
Soy Milk- Soy Yuch. (Let that stuff serve its original purpose of poisoning hamburger meat.)

Wow, the congressmen can work Bi-partisan on something completely unimportant like this?

Corporate lobbying at its finest. The thing that pisses me off is this stuff is done under the guise of protecting consumers when it is really about protecting market share of the corporate lobbyist.

Noticed it is by-partisan as well. Quite a few republicans listed as co-sponsors.

That's coconut water, which is very different from the very thick and rich coconut milk.

ETA:

Granted, maybe "milk" should be reserved that which comes from...mammals? This coming from a guy who enjoys soy and almond milk, and who doesn't drink cow milk.

It is simply truth in advertising. This stuff is not milk and the label shouldn't have that word. Too many people are not smart enough to differentiate.

I guess they could call it a cash cow...but this is the really what our representatives are working on for us?
I didn't know that almond milk didn't come from cows ,I'm glad they cleared that up for us.

I thought there were almond cows.


Now the almond growers are going to get upset.
